Isabelle Harvey Named Assistant Coach
April 21, 2005
Harvey, a native of Cap-Rouge, Quebec, Canada, played at USC from 1996-2000 and is the only player in the program's history to earn All-America honors all four seasons. Her best season came as a 1996 freshman when she set school records for goals (20) and points (51), to go with 11 assists.
She still holds school career records for goals (48), assists (39), game-winning goals (21) and points (135).
'I'm excited to have Isabelle back in the program,' said Millinder. 'She is USC's most accomplished player and gained substantial coaching experience after her playing career. She is a great fit for our staff and her international experience will greatly impact our players.'During the 1999 Women's World Cup, Harvey started all three games for Canada and registered two assists. She currently ranks 13th in Canadian history with 44 international caps.
Harvey spent four years (2001-04) as an assistant coach at Cal State Los Angeles for the men's and women's soccer programs. She served as the interim head coach for the men's and women's team during the 2002-03 season. This year, the men's squad went 9-9-1, the most wins since the 1996 season, while the women's team went 9-8-2, the most wins in the program's history.
She replaces Andrea Warner, who took another job within the USC athletic department in March.
The Women of Troy finished the 2004 season with a 9-9-1 overall record. The team returns seven starters to go along with the nation's top incoming freshman class, which includes Women's National Team forward and 2005 Gatorade High School Player of the Year Amy Rodriguez and U-19 National Team defender Meagan Holmes.
